Strider bike - By Chelsea Martin

 I know there are other brands of balance bikes, but I think the thing that makes The Strider bike unique and worth the money is that it is so lightweight. If my son is riding his bike and gets tired I can easily carry it or put the bike in the stroller and keep going. Plus it makes him so happy to be like the big kids.

Why we like it:

1. This Bike has sometimes been featured on Zulily for a discount.

2. Expensive, but worth every penny.

3. Kids transition straight to a pedal bike without every using training wheels.

4. The biggest question moms have about the bike is how young can a child use it? I think it depends on the height of your child and their interest in biking. My son is on the shorter side for his age and didn't seem to want to ride it until he was 2 ½ year old, but I know that other children enjoy this bike at much younger ages.
